    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Tennessee Judge orders baby's name be changed from 'Messiah'

    Tennessee Judge orders baby's name be changed from 'Messiah' | wbir.com

    A Newport mother is appealing a court's decision after a judge ordered her son's name be changed from "Messiah."Jaleesa Martin and the father of Messiah could not agree on a last name, which is how they ended up at a child support hearing in Cocke County Chancery Court on Thursday.
    That is when the first name came into question.

    ...

    Judge Ballew ordered the 7-month-old's name be "Martin DeShawn McCullough." It includes both parent's last names but leaves out Messiah.
    "The word Messiah is a title and it's a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ," Judge Ballew said.


    Bad judge...

    Messiah is a terrible choice for a given name anyway.

    This seems hard to believe. Still, can't wait for the Onion article covering this. Heading titled, "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!"

    There are a lot of terrible choices for names. But that's not the point. A clear mixing of religion in government where it does not belong. I didn't pay enough attention to see what sort of judge it was (appointed or elected), but the judge should no longer be one, anywhere, ever.

    Get out. Do you really think a baby's name should be a matter of judicial revue?
    Unless your name is Ziggy, Dweezel or Moon Unit you don't have a case.
